The housing market continues to shift and change, and in a fast-moving landscape, like we are in right now, it’s more important than ever to have a trusted real estate agent on your side. Whether you’re buying your first home or selling once again, you need a true expert in today’s housing market who can guide you through each unique step of the process.

The reality is, that not all agents operate the same way. To truly make a wise and confident decision as you buy or sell a home, you need a real estate expert who uses their knowledge of what’s really happening with home prices, housing supply, industry projections, and more in your local market to give you the best possible advice. Someone who can provide insight and trust like that is crucial to your success.

Jay Thompson, Real Estate Industry Consultant, explains:

“Housing market headlines are everywhere. Many are quite sensational, ending with exclamation points or predicting impending doom for the industry. Clickbait, the sensationalizing of headlines and content, has been an issue since the dawn of the internet, and housing news is not immune to it.”

Unfortunately, when information in the media isn’t clear, it can generate a lot of fear and uncertainty for consumers. The shocking headlines you’ve been seeing about the housing market are something we wrote about in a recent blog. As Jason Lewris, Co-Founder and Chief Data Officer at Parclsays:

“In the absence of trustworthy, up-to-date information, real estate decisions are increasingly being driven by fear, uncertainty, and doubt.”

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Buying a home is a significant life decision, and it should be one you feel confident making. You need to be able to lean on an expert who can help you separate fact from fiction and get the answers you need.

The right agent can assist you in figuring out what is going on at the national level and in your local area. They can debunk headlines using data you can trust. Experts have in-depth knowledge of the industry and can provide context, so you can understand how current trends compare to the normal ebbs and flows in the housing market, historical data, and more.

Then, to make sure you have the full picture, an agent can tell you if your local area is following the national trend or if they’re seeing something different in your market. Together, you can use all that information to make the best possible decision.

After all, making a move is a potentially life-changing milestone. It should be something you feel ready for and excited about. And that’s where a trusted expert comes in.
